Baby Buds 6 weeks to 12 months:
In our classroom we are working with each baby on an individual basis. Our day consists of our morning circle time, sensory stimulation, art projects, story time and always lots of cuddle time. During circle time, we are singing our morning songs and working on our sign language. We work with each of our babies on motor skills that vary by age. All of our babies spend a large portion of their day on the mats playing and interacting with our staff and each other.
